Tesco and the Squirrel Inn at Stourport

Once again Tesco puts the moves on Stourport this time over the river and in Areley Kings, this time with a bid to turn the old Squirrel Inn into a Tesco Express.To some this may seem a little odd given the hold-up with the new store that, rumour has it, will finally be built and ready by September this year. However this isn't odd in the slightest given the proximity of a Londis, a newsagents, and a pharmacy.

Despite the assurances of the spokesman that "There is every reason to believe we will co-exist and complement the existing independent traders, as we do in villages and small towns across the country." this isn't why they're planning a store in this location.

This isn't a case of Tesco serving the needs of a community, nor offering 'competition'. They're not taking a risk with opening a brand-new store in an area not served by one they're trying to take over an existing market. They can see that there already exists enough of a clientèle to support three stores and they just want to poach them.

I'm sure they'll give assurances that deliveries won't cause a problem, as they did at that Kidderminster branch then parked a lorry in the street. It also won't affect any other of the Tesco stores despite, again rumour, that some staff already have been handed redundancy notices.

It's going to cause a mass of trouble in terms of car-parking, but there is a simple solution if it does get built - don't shop there.

I am really enjoying reading your well written articles. I think you spend numerous effort and time updating your site. I have bookmarked it and I am taking a look ahead to reading new articles:)

And in other pics you can observe two more bridesmaids, one wearing this Go and something wearing that one.

All the ladies' sage green bridesmaid dresses were within the collection's Blush color, so that they match perfectly. And they all are less expensive than $180, causing them to be even more awesome in my book.
